When you first bought your 2008 Honda Pilot, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Pilot feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2008 Honda Pilot in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.
We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Pilot suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Honda Pilot suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.
Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2008 Honda Pilot’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Pilot’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Honda Pilot shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Pilot’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
